Growing young hearts and minds

We connect with Catholic school students across the country to encourage them to serve the most vulnerable by better understanding the causes of poverty as well as its solutions. We are growing young hearts and minds for social justice.

Partnering with Australian schools and parishes

We work with schools and parishes across the country, helping educate children and young people about poverty in our world.

We hope to inspire our future leaders to "be more", and serve those who are struggling. Our Social and Ecological Justice Animator team works in every state to provide resources, deliver virtual sessions and support people to get engaged in global social justice.

"Let us not develop an education that creates in the mind of the student a hope of becoming rich and having the power to dominate [but one that forms] the lofty ideal of loving, of preparing oneself to serve and to give oneself to others."
